CALVIN: An Interactive Programming Language


Huosheng Hu

Project Description:

This project is to implement a software package, Calvin, initially designed by Valiant Technology, intended to allow secondary school children to program a limited range of ATMEL processors. Calvin enables school students to tackle general control problems, but has an emphasis on robotics, particularly mobile robots. The project will also involve the development of up to 4 simple project boards that will permit students to incorporate the ATMEL processors into class projects. Some of these may link to Valiant's Tronix products, and others will be standalone designs. More details here
